Jordan Cove Comment Writing Workshop (and The Folly of Frack!)


Please join Oregon PSR for a fun presentation of The Folly of Frack, to be followed by a presentation on the proposed Jordan Cove Energy Project/Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline and on-site comment writing. For this massive project to proceed, the US Army Corps of Engineers and Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) must approve all required Clean Water Act permits. Fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, New York, and Maryland have been stopped through the Clean Water Act process because of harmful impacts to rivers, streams and wetlands.

Thanks to those of you who've already signed petitions and/or sent individual comments. The more the better! Here's a fun opportunity to gain new information about the project and write one more unique comment, the most valuable type of comment one can submit. We will collect comments and mail them for you. Comments must be received by Saturday, August 20th

6:30 PM - Gather for light food and snacks

7:00 PM - Folly of Frack show

7:20 PM - Presentation by Regna Merritt (Oregon PSR) and Dan Serres (Columbia Riverkeeper) 

Followed by Q&A and letter writing session.

If you can't attend, please submit your comment today to let these agencies know why you oppose the Jordan Cove project and Pacific Connector Pipeline, and remember:

  • This project would run a 229-mile fracked gas pipeline across private and public land, creating a 95-foot wide clearcut through Oregon's forests and farms.
  • It would degrade 485 rivers and streams, heating water, increasing the threat of harmful algae blooms and bringing harm to salmon, businesses, communities, and tribal nations.
  • The pipeline would terminate on the coast in an export facility in the Port of Coos Bay, creating a huge risk of explosion and fire in a tsunami hazard zone.
  • It would become the largest source of climate pollution in Oregon, with effects that would extend worldwide.
